Coach Carolyn’s Strategies Target the Trucking Industry’s Most Serious and Costly Problem, Truck Driver Health

Truck Driver Health


  • Driver retention is affected when drivers struggle to stay on the road or pass DOT due to health
  • As truck driver health continues to decline, the need for a solution

At the Great American Truck Show in Dallas, Texas, on August 22-24, 2019, Coach Carolyn debuts her driver-focused strategies as solutions to the crisis of truck driver health. She has been affiliated with the trucking industry for 20 years, which has given her the upper hand concerning on the road struggles. Her strategies target not only the individual driver but also trucking companies who continue to battle driver retention when employees do not pass DOT regulations due to health issues.

Carolyn realized the need to create informative and simple strategies that will improve the health and well-being of the individual drivers as well as assist trucking companies that want to increase retention which in turn improves their bottom line.

After the success of her driver-focused book,Gut Instinct, in 2016, she has been approached by numerous drivers for more. The recently completed strategies are:

  • Driven To Health, a systematic approach to gaining physical
  • Driven To Peace, an in-depth yet simplified journey through the process of emotional healing.
  • Driven To Stop, a step-by-step strategy to stop the use of tobacco for

These (Customizable) strategies will not only support driver retention but will be a solution for the many drivers who are ready to commit to a better lifestyle and quality of life.

Replacing drivers is expensive. Drivers who feel valued stay. Drivers that are in good health are more productive.

Never before in our history has the topic of better health been so popular. In 2017 Amazon bought the largest health food store in the world for 14 billion dollars. The proof is in the pudding. The trucking industry is behind. Why? Are our drivers less important? I think not! We wouldn’t have the products in the health food stores if it weren’t for these drivers.

“My heart is for the drivers,” continued Coach Carolyn, “The way I see it, is truck driver health is a win/win/win situation. Trucking companies improve driver retention, customers are more satisfied with happy drivers, and last but not least, drivers live better lives.”

Carolyn O’Byrne, CHT is the wife of a second-generation truck driver and works with drivers one on one, through her book, and through her online strategies focusing on their physical and emotional health.
